YouTube Video - Kursk 1943

A video montage of German action at Kursk 1943 billed as the largest tank battle in WW2.

It's interesting to note the numbers of Panthers and Tiger Is deployed were minuscule but their propaganda impact was huge.

The fact that the Russians claimed their Tiger kills were more than the actual number of Tigers deployed were a testament to their fear of these tanks in 1943.

Nonetheless, the industrial might of Russia and the price of fighting against two industrial superpower (USA and Russia) proved to be the death knell of the German forces in WW2.
